This is just a quick update. The word is in and still no idea if Luke will come back. It has been made known to us by the NY Red Bulls Head Coach Hans Backe that he wants the fiesty striker back but, we still have to be patient with the US Governmnet.
In Norway Luke is just staying fit…not much has changed. he was hurt for a little while and he’s back now. It’d be nice to see him score some goals there with all the bad luck and injuries Lillestrom has but things seem to not be going the Englishman’s way.
Playing alongside Henry creates a lot of chances and Luke was able to capitalize on them wonderfully. We sold our young prospect, Juan Agudelo to Chivas USA for a solid defender. It was a great trade and this leads me to suggest things might be looking good for Luke…well hopefully. This is 100% conjecture. However, if Henry or cooper become hurt or both at the same time we have no good striker to fill in. We now only have 2 solid , good strikers in Kenny Cooper, who is leading the MLS in goals, and Henry who is in the number 2 spot even with missing several games recently.
Hope Luke returns soon. I’ll keep you updated if there is any change.
